Has Anyone Seen Javi?
Earlier today a reader commented that north Brooklyn seems to have a lot of lost cats of late. If my inbox is any indication, this would definitely appear to be case. Tania, who brought the handsome chap to the the left to my attention writes:
Hi Miss Heather,
hope you are doing well! My wonderful neighbor’s cat went missing on Sunday night on the corner of North 5th and Bedford Ave, I hate to bug you but was hoping if you had a chance you could post this on your site, it would be greatly appreciated. She is very very upset and is going crazy looking for Javier.
Included in Tania’s email was a link to an advertisement on Craigslist enlisting help for Javi’s safe return. It reads as follows:
LOST: All Black male cat, about 4 years old. Responds to Javier or Javi (“ha-vee”). Short hair but with a big fluffy tail and exceptionally large head. Has a red collar with a red heart rabies tag from Pennsylvania animal hospital. Last seen in the building 132 North 5th St (at Bedford) Sunday AM, June 20. 4th floor. He’s very trusting and loving so may have wandered out of the house and into someone else’s care for the time being, as it was very hot!! May have left if the door was accidentally left open by a guest or have escaped out the window onto the neighboring balcony. Either way, he is an indoor cat (does have his claws though he never uses them) and he never wanders far on the few occasions he got out before – is scared of being outside alone. He has large, beautiful yellow eyes.
If you have seen Javi (who it should be noted will reply rather vocally to his name) or know of his whereabouts please contact his person, Caitlin, via email at: caitlingutekunst (at) gmail (dot) com
